Following the success of Maxon’s NAB digital experience, the company is going to host a series of virtual events to coincide with the now cancelled Siggraph, IBC, NAB Show NY, HOW and Adobe Max shows.
As New York City begins to reopen and Hollywood goes back to work, many companies continue to use virtual events as their solution to get in touch with clients, communities and the public. Maxon, the developers of professional 3D modeling, animation, and rendering software solutions, just announced that its trade shows, road shows and special events for the remainder of 2020 will be free virtual events hosted on 3DMotionShow.com (formerly C4DLive.com).
The launch of the new Maxon’s 3D and Motion Design Show, which will host a series of artist-focused digital experiences, signals that Maxon is rebranding the company’s streaming events to reflect the full product line after the acquisition of Redshift and the merger with Red Giant.
Following the success of Maxon’s NAB digital experience, the company will host a robust calendar of online streaming events to coincide with the timing of Siggraph, IBC, NAB Show NY, HOW and Adobe Max — shows that are now cancelled as in-person events. Each virtual trade show or event will be modeled after Maxon’s NAB Show online event, which featured four full days of exciting presentations that streamed live the same week the major industry conference would have taken place prior to its cancellation amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
Maxon will be hosting this series of events as “The 3D and Motion Design Show.” It will feature the world’s top motion graphics and VFX artists showcasing professional 3D techniques and real-world production workflows using Cinema 4D, Redshift and the Red Giant suite of products. Presentations from each event will be streamed live and available online shortly after airing on 3DMotionShow.com as well as the Maxon YouTube channel.
